Setting: The kids have just been turned out for recess (postponing their math lesson - morning time started late and went long - again), and I head into the kitchen area to refill my mug while my husband, who works from home, is doing the same.
Matt: What's wrong?
Me: I'm just trying to shove too many things into too little time.
Matt: You should sleep less and drink more coffee.
Me (laughing): Yes, but you're just making it work for yourself - I'm dealing with children here too!
Matt: Have you tried giving them coffee?
Me (laughing): Um, no. I don't think that's a good idea.
Matt: Don't knock my solution if you haven't tried it!
Emma: I'll give coffee a try!
